, people like bob rubin and larry summers who are close confidants of the obama administration are probably telling them, "look, if we start prosecuting all kinds of people for you know, x, y and z, there's going to be major instability in the markets. people are going to flee america. they're going to withdraw capital from the american financial system. it'll be a disaster. jobs will be lost." but it's just not an acceptable it's explanation. i think they're -- >> why? >> well, just because the rule of law isn't really the rule of law if it doesn't apply equally to everybody. i mean, if you're going to put somebody in jail for having a joint in his pocket, you can't let higher ranking hsbc officials off for laundering $800 million for the worst drug dealers in the entire world. people who are suspected, not only of dealing drugs, but of thousands of murders. i mean, this is an incredible dichotomy. and eventually, you know, it eats away at the very fabric of society when some people go to jail and some people don't go to jail. >> but do you ever have the sense that those guys are, you know

well under the obama administration. some of that is pos/t 9/11. in los war will lead to a decline in information transparency access. anytime you can have less sequence -- secrecy, that is good. less secrecy is needed. it was handled at the outset by partnering with newspapers like "the guardian," traditional newspapers of distinction. wikileaks released documents around the world to newspapers in india, haiti, the middle east, latin america. it has had an impact in countries we do not know enough about. we're doing a project with six editors in latin america to look at how wikileaks has played a role in their politics. >> the media got distracted by the personality issues with julian assange. it is a fascinating, dark, twisted story, whatever is true.

and peace report. i'm amy goodman. the obama administration has agreed to show two congressional panels the stated legal rationale for assassinating u.s. citizens overseas. on thursday, the white house directed the justice department to release a controversial 2010 memo to the house and senate intelligence committees. the memo details the administration's legal justification for targeting the american-born cleric anwar al awlaki, who ultimately died in u.s. drone strike in yemen. the memo's release follows growing calls from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle for access to the administration's guidelines for drone strikes and other attacks targeting u.s. citizens overseas. a bipartisan senate letter demanding the memos earlier this week had accused the white house of "practicing secret law." it also follows this week's leaking of a white memo that allows for the killing of americans through an expansive definition of what constitutes an imminent threat. at a news conference in washington, attorney general eric holder was asked what he is releasing the drone memos publicly after disclo
exactly the obama administration thinks these strikes are legal. they say, let me say as simply as i can, "in full accordance with the law, the united states government conducted targeted strikes." "in full accordance with the law." we know that they do think it's legal. but they won't say why they think it's legal. the closest we have come to learning about how the obama administration justifies drone strikes is this. in the fall of 2011, "new york times" reporter charlie savage wrote this story. this is about a week after al awlaki was killed. the story describes a super secret 50-page memo written by an office within the justice department that effectively serves as the obama's administration's legal justification for why they think it's okay to kill an american citizen without a trial. now "the new york times" did not actually get to see this memo. they did not publish the memo, nor did they quote from it directly. the momentum mow was described to the reporter by anonymous sources. and that's when things got really weird, because after the "times" reported on the existence of the me
a long time, when the c.i.a. for 25 years, now he's been with the obama administration as a national security advisor for four years. and while he was not the architect of the drone program itself, he has been the architect of the obama administration drone program. and i came away from there with the feeling that i had going in that there is a definite direction of not capturing these high value targets and soliciting information from them through detention and interrogation. >> but because he said that it's ideal or preferrable to capture them so you can get intelligence. >> yet when i asked him how many high value targets they had captured in the last four years on the obama administration, he dodged and weaved there. >> he said he would get back to you with a number. >> the fact is, i know what the number is. it's one. he allude to do it a little later in his testimony. we captured a guy, we put him on a ship for 60 days and sailed around in the ocean, interrogated him. you know, that's not a detention interrogation policy that can be -- >> brennan also, as mike emmanuel pointed
: another pending addition to the obama administration is senator chuck hagel, who was been nominated to be the secretary of defense. if he becomes the secretary of defense, what is his involvement in the sequestration process going to be? guest: he will be in general in making these cuts happen. he is a veteran and a former member of the senate armed services committee. he knows the military. one of the reasons he was brought into this is because he knows how to cut. he knows what works and what does not. at least that is what the administration thinks. he will be an effective person, and leaves the white house hopes, in making these cuts take place. host: we are talking with ray locker, the national security editor at the newspaper, usa today. our next call comes from st. louis on our line for republicans. go ahead, greg. caller: even though the sequestered takes place, instead of spending 40 cents of every dollar, we would only be spending 38 cents out of every dollar. i did not know if it makes a difference. i think we need sequestration. thanks. guest: one of the things that many
outlets are facing criticism after it was revealed they complied with an obama administration request to hide the location of a secret u.s. drone base in saudi arabia. the base was first used in 2011 to kill muslim cleric and u.s. citizen anwar al awlaki. the paper discusses location of the first time this week, reportedly because the base's architect, john brennan, is now nominated to head the cia. the washington post admitted there were also part of "in informal arrangement among several news organizations that have been aware of the location for more than a year." critics are questioning the papers' silence, particularly because other outlets noted the location of the base months ago. the times of london mentioned it in july 2011 while fox news notification and an online article before broadening the language to say "arabian peninsula." adrian chen wrote -- a hunt is underway in southern california for former police officer accused of killing three people and launching a targeted offensive against the l.a. police department. christopher dorner, a former navy reserve lieutenant, pos
, the dow gained three-quarters of a percent, and so did the nasdaq. the obama administration announced new rules today for contraceptive coverage under the affordable care act. faith-based non-profits, like hospitals and universities, would be allowed to issue health insurance without providing coverage for contraceptives. however, employees and students would be able to obtain a separate policy at no cost to the employer. more than 45 federal lawsuits have been filed challenging the contraceptive coverage requirement, claiming the mandate violates religious beliefs. protesters across egypt defied curfews to chant against the rule of egyptian president mohammed morsi. the protests cap a week of political rioting that left up to 60 people dead. and tonight, some of the protests reached the doorstep of the president in cairo. demonstrators hurled objects, including firebombs, over the wall of the presidential palace. morsi was not inside. opposition parties called the protests in an attempt to win concessions from the president. in pakistan, a suicide bomber attacked a shiite mosque, killing
chocolate cereal. ♪ chocolate. >>> today, the obama administration released its new and improved rules for contraception under the new affordable care act. yaah, new rules, the gist is this, everybody with health care insurance does get access to contraception. the catch is religious employers wouldn't have to contract, arrange or pay to anything in which they object to on religious grounds. so this is an attempt to have it a bit both ways on this issue. >> the president has been very clear on these issues. clear about what he believes are two compelling interests, which are the necessity of and the appropriateness of providing preventive services to women across the country, including contraception. and making sure that we are mindful of religious liberty. and he has instructed those who work for him on this issue to be cognizant on this issue. >> the way it works, is weird. religious employers and faith-based nonprofits like universities and hospitals and charities don't have to provide the contraception coverage for their employees, but the employees could get it with the outside ag

to kill this man. he was also a u.s. citizen and the obama administration agreed to show congress the legal opinion justifies such attacks. the white house argues that from strikes effectively target america's enemies but critics cite heavy civilian casualties and the u.s. relies on them too much. >> the drone is the only weapon that really frightened insurgents. it is ineffective. we cannot possibly kill these people one at a time and expect to come out on top. >> they are clearly not invincible. iranian tv has shown these pictures that come from a u.s. surveillance drone they captured two years ago. it's interesting timing. >> with me here in the studio is a former adviser to president obama's special up is that it to afghanistan and pakistan. you understand this area of the world very closely. how important is this to the national security? >> it has killed a number of al qaeda leaders but it has not decimated the organization completely. it has pushed them to move into other areas of the middle east. also, at a very high political cost. it does cause an enormous amount of ange

. [ laughter ] but the obama administration didn't abandon due process all by themselves. no, none of this giving up would have been possible without the heroic roadblocks thrown up by congress, which passed laws barring the transfer of detainees into the united states, that prohibited transferring detainees to countries with troubled security conditions. and restricted detainees from being returned home even if they had been promised it as part of a plea deal. thereby upholding the constitutionally guaranteed right of "habeus psych!"
